Enabling Cooperation

We had a very interesting meeting this morning and it only dawned on me afterwards that we had actually done something that people always talk about in the “BIM World”. Around the table we had the Clients Asset Integration Team, Clients GIS Team, Clients Operation and Maintenance Team, Clients Information Manager, Project Designers and the Tier 1 Joint Venture Contractors. All talking up working together, exchanging information, lessons learned both good and bad so that the good can be repeated and the bad avoided. Where information can be leveraged early and really bring value to the entire lifecycle. Being able to bring client end requirements into the early process to ensure the end product is delivered.

It was open, transparent and productive. We have not even started on site yet! So really bringing the effort and understanding to the front end of the project. I am really looking forward to more of the same.

One Response to Enabling Cooperation

    Balfour Beatty found on the M25 that Snapfile Ontrack greatly improved their collaboration in the area of defect reporting and repair. In the past all of the sub contractors arrived at the meetings with their own data in their own format. With Snapfile everybody is working from the same data and the same list. This single version of the truth was a massive advantage for collaboration and cost saving.
